Alexander Pfänder was a German philosopher who was heavily influenced by Husserl's phenomenological approach, and his work developed and expanded upon many of Husserl's ideas. In "Phenomenology of Willing and Motivation and Other Phaenomenologica," Pfänder explores the nature of human motivation and the role that the will plays in shaping our perceptions and actions. He argues that our will is not simply a passive aspect of our consciousness, but an active force that drives us to act in certain ways. Through careful analysis of subjective experience, Pfänder develops a nuanced and complex understanding of human motivation that has had a lasting impact on the field of philosophy. Good / good.
